Apart from the members of the committee, the Minister of State for Agriculture and farmers Welfare Shri Parashottam Rupala was also participated in the meeting of the Committee. The Joint Hindi Advisory Committee of the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare was constituted on 24 August 2016. It was the first meeting after the committee was constituted.

During the discussions carried out in the meeting, the members of the committee expressed their satisfaction about the use of official language Hindi in the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare and its departments.

After the discussion, Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare expressed his views while addressing the gathering that most of policies/schemes as well as activities concerned with Ministry of Agriculture and Farmer Welfare relate to farmers and common man. Therefore, it is our duty that we should use Hindi as much as possible while implementing policies/schemes related to the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare in the business of Central Government.
